Recently my main gpu (6950) died on me so when I had to RMA it I installed a semi broken gpu (hd4850) (It has these strange colored blocks appearing when on load).
Anyway when I had correctly installed my old gpu and I noticed dead/stuck pixels when browsing the web I thought my monitor was starting to give in. However today I recieved my replacement new gpu and the dead/stuck pixels were not to be seen.
So my question to you all, have any of you ever experienced this?
PS: Before anyone asks, no the pixels never moved an inch they were at exactly the same place all the time.
Yeah I'm personally not really worried about stuck pixels (was already planning on getting a new monitor this year).
However if I have experienced this due to a faulty gpu others who blame their monitors might have it as well. Thus it might be handy if we encounter a post mentioning dead stuck pixels we also advice taking a look at the gpu.
And I doubt it's intermittant, never ever had a stuck pixels in the 3years I have this monitor and before my old 6950 broke down I never had one either. It's seems completely gpu related.
